 Spanish Cob Coin Jewelry

Cob coins were hand manufactured by cutting blanks from crudely cast bars of refined silver or gold and hand hammered between crudely engraved dies.  They lack the detail of modern machine struck coins, but each is unique in shape and strike, which makes them so interesting.

Certificates of Authenticity accompany all Spanish Coin Jewelry.
